Ek Balam Day Trip

Having picked you up from your hotel in Cancún, we'll take the motorway westwards to the interior of the Yucatán peninsula.

We'll make our first stop in the Maya community of Ek Balam, located just a couple of miles away from the ancient ruins of Ek Balam, where the old pre-colonial language is still spoken. We'll learn about their customs and traditions, as well as visit the typical dwellings where the locals live and make traditional artisanal products.

After exploring Ek Balam, we'll head to a Maya cenote, an underground cavern with an enormous natural pool of sparkling emerald waters. Here, we'll have time to enjoy a refreshing dip in the cenote while admiring the spectacular jungle landscapes surrounding us.

In this magical enclave, you can also have fun rappelling, zip lining or playing trepachanga, an entertaining game played on ropes. Afterward, we'll attend a Maya ceremony led by an authentic shaman that will purify your spirit.

You're bound to be hungry after all this excitement! Our next stop will be at a local restaurant to indulge in a delicious  lunch including handmade tortillas.

After lunch, we'll take you back to the hotels in the Cancún area, arriving after 12 hours of excursion.
